The one bad thing about job searching is you can't really share much of it with people around you. For one, we spent a good majority of our lives and work, and while I've had coworkers in whom I confided in the past, there aren't any here that would hold that distinction.
I have been looking for another job for a long time and started actively applying about three months ago... Only about one job a month. So, I've applied for a museum, a news organization, and another nonprofit. Thursday I sent in the last and today I was called asking if I was available for a phone interview Thursday.
I am over-the-moon ecstatic, and I can't celebrate, so I hope you guys will silently celebrate with me because I have been stuck in a job I don't enjoy for four years now. I endured and kept my head down and I've served well here, but in January I almost started applying and held off because I had a talk with my boss and it seemed like things were going to improve. They haven't... It's really awful here and I'm tired of all the politics and the back-stabbing and the iniquity and I need a fresh start.
Around June I decided it was time to stop delaying and start applying, to go after new things. And while I wasn't positive another nonprofit was what I wanted, this one is a really well-respected one, and I think I can make a huge difference there. So, prayers and good thoughts appreciated for Thursday at 1PM EST. I'm hopeful, excited and ready for a new chapter in my life!
